Migraines, peri-menopause, the works

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi there, I am on an HRT tablet called Angelique. I am 43 years old and I have had the symptoms of perimenopause for about 2 years. I was on Estrefem and Trisequens but I am a migraine sufferer and I think that Angelique stabilises your hormones a bit better. The only problem is that I feel like I am choking and I absolutely NO energy :-( Does anyone else suffer from migraines as well as everything else to do with perimenopause and does any medication help specifically?

    Hi ClairyBee

    I have suffered from Migraines my entire life. My neurologist told me that estrogen replacements can feed a migraine or bring one on. So if one does not work try another. I was on gold old Premarin for years with no problems at all. Now on Estridol and the headaches are "iffy"..as in not sure if it is the medication or other neck problems that I endure. Don't give up. Try as many as you need to find the right one for you. Your doctor should be able to give you samples so you are not stuck paying for a drug you cannot tolerate. Good luck.

    Do you get aura (coloured/flashing lights in your eyes) with your migraines? I would love to try HRT but can't due to migraines with aura
